Never Again? Rather, Never Until Next Time…

Twenty years ago today the world stood by while 1 million Tutsis we slaughtered in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Then, the world pledged those famous words—never again, the same words spoken after the Jewish Holocaust. Here we are twenty years later and the words never again seem to carry little weight. Our international system continues to value state sovereignty over humanitarian intervention and while its does, we continue to have spurs of genocide like that in the Darfur…

International Criminal Court (ICC) and Africans: “Race-hunting” or Quest for Justice?

The International Criminal Court is the first permanent international court to try international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. But in an unprecedented move, the African Union (AU) is threatening to encourage its members to withdraw from the Rome Statute upon which the ICC is built. This threat comes as the AU is spearheading a campaign to pressure the ICC to drop charges or transfer to Kenya, the cases against Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Vice-president…
